How to Find All Failed SSH login Attempts in Linux ?

Each attempt to login to SSH server is tracked and recorded into a log file by the rsyslog daemon in Linux. The most basic mechanism to list all failed SSH logins attempts in Linux is a combination of displaying and filtering the log files.
The most simple command to list all failed SSH logins is the one shown below.
#grep "Failed password" /var/log/auth.log
Sample output.
grep "Failed password" /var/log/auth.log
Sep 26 09:49:11 linuxforfreshers.com sshd[32138]: Failed password for ravi from 192.168.101.26 port 33325 ssh2
Oct  2 23:04:25 linuxforfreshers.com sshd[25028]: Failed password for root from 192.168.101.211 port 55800 ssh2
In order to display extra information about the failed SSH logins, issue the command as shown in the below example.
#egrep "Failed|Failure" /var/log/auth.log
In CentOS or RHEL, the failed SSH sessions are recorded in /var/log/secure file. Issue the above command against this log file to identify failed SSH logins.
#egrep "Failed|Failure" /var/log/secure
Sample output
Dec 29 16:11:01 localhost sshd[32526]: Failed password for root from 192.168.101.111 port 31729 ssh2
Dec 29 16:11:04 localhost sshd[32526]: Failed password for root from 58.218.198.264 port 31729 ssh2

How to configure Passwordless SSH login in Linux ?


SSH is often used to login from one machine to another machine, There are number of methods to achieve this but mostly in every method it requires authentication..... It also does requires authentication but for one time only i.e. for the first time you need to do a setup and for rest of the times when you will try to login via ssh it will not ask for any password.

For achieving this you just need to generate your own personal set of private/public key pair. ssh-keygen is used to generate that key pair for you.


A HOWTO for generating your own private/public key pair is given below:

Firstly generate your private/public key pair by following command:

[root@linuxforfreshers.com Desktop]$ ssh-keygen -t rsa
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/home/root/.ssh/id_rsa): [Press enter if you want to save your keys to default location]
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): [Enter your passphrase]
Enter same passphrase again:  [Enter your passphrase again to verify]
Your identification has been saved in /home/root/.ssh/id_rsa.
Your public key has been saved in /home/root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub.
The key fingerprint is:
52:17:88:67:f9:ae:03:e2:59:39:97:f9:7d:95:b6:ed root@linuxforfreshers.com
The key's randomart image is:
+--[ RSA 2048]----+
|       . o.      |
|      . =  .     |
|       o...      |
|       . ..      |
|      ..S+      .|
|    . =.+ .    o.|
|   . + + o .  ..o|
|    o   o . . ...|
|         .   . .E|
+-----------------+

Now just copy your public key to remote machine, in this case I have generated key pair for server.example.com and copied server's public key to client's machine via following command.

[root@linuxforfreshers.com .ssh]$ ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub  client@192.168.86.129
client@192.168.86.129's password:  [Enter the password for the first time]
Now try logging into the machine, with "ssh 'client@192.168.86.129'", and check in:

cat  /home/client/ .ssh/authorized_keys

Now when you will try to login to client's machine it will not prompt for the password.

[root@linuxforfreshers.com ~]$ ssh client@192.168.86.129
Last login: Thu Dec  9 10:45:35 2015 from server.redhat.com

List Of Free Windows SSH Client Tools To Connect To Your Linux Server



You have Windows as operating system and you need to connect to Linux server to transfer files from Linux to Windows and inversely. So you need to have Secure Shell known as SSH. In fact, SSH is a network protocol which enables you to connect to Linux and Unix servers over the network. It uses public key cryptography to authenticate the remote computer. You can use SSH by several ways, either by using it automatically or by using a password authentication to log in.
This article provides a list of SSH clients let you to connect SSH to your Linux servers.
let’s start.

PuTTY

PuTTY is the most famous SSH and telnet client, developed originally by Simon Tatham for the Windows platform. PuTTY is open source software that is available with source code and is developed and supported by a group of volunteers.


http://www.linuxforfreshers.com/

Putty is very easy to install and to use.You don’t usually need to change most of the configuration options. To start the simplest kind of session, all you need to do is to enter a few basic parameters.

Bitvise SSH Client

Bitvise SSH Client is an SSH and SFTP client for Windows. It is developed and supported professionally by Bitvise. The SSH Client is robust, easy to install, easy to use. Bitvise SSH Client is a feature-rich graphical SSH/SFTP client for windows and allow you dynamic port forwarding through an integrated proxy with auto-reconnecting capability.

Bitvise SSH Client is free for personal use, as well as for individual commercial use inside organizations. You can download Bitvise SSH Client here.

MobaXterm

MobaXterm is your ultimate toolbox for remote computing. In a single Windows application, it provides loads of functions that are tailored for programmers, webmasters, IT administrators and pretty much all users who need to handle their remote jobs in a more simple fashion.

MobaXterm provides all the important remote network tools (SSH, X11, RDP, VNC, FTP, MOSH, …) and Unix commands (bash, ls, cat, sed, grep, awk, rsync, …) to Windows desktop, in a single portable exe file which works out of the box. MobaXterm is free for personal use. You can download MobaXterm from here.

DameWare SSH

I think that DameWare SSH is the best free ssh client.


http://www.linuxforfreshers.com/


This free tool is a terminal emulator that lets you make multiple telnet and SSH connections from one easy-to-use console.
  • Manage multiple sessions from one console with a tabbed interface
  • Save favorite sessions within the Windows file system
  • Access multiple sets of saved credentials for easy log-in to different devices
  • Connect to computers and devices using telnet, SSH1, and SSH2 protocols
You can download DameWare SSH  from this link.
SmarTTY
SmarTTY is a free multi-tabbed SSH client that supports copying files and directories with SCP on-the-fly.

http://www.linuxforfreshers.com/

Most SSH servers support up to 10 sub-sessions per connection. SmarTTY makes the best of it: no annoying multiple windows, no need to relogin, just open a new tab and go!

Cygwin

Cygwin is a large collection of GNU and Open Source tools which provide functionality similar to a Linux distribution on Windows.
http://www.linuxforfreshers.com/

Cygwin consists of a Unix system call emulation library, cygwin1.dll, together with a vast set of GNU and other free software applications organized into a large number of optional packages. Among these packages are high-quality compilers and other software development tools, an X11 server, a complete X11 development toolkit, GNU emacs, TeX and LaTeX, OpenSSH (client and server), and much more, including everything needed to compile and use PhysioToolkit software under MS-Windows.
